BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings car dealer is once again proposing a ballot measure to ban medical marijuana in Montana.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1GwGkc4 ) Steve Zabawa submitted proposed ballot language that would repeal Montana’s medical marijuana law and bar any Schedule I drug listed in the federal Controlled Substances Act, which includes marijuana.

He filed the proposal with the Montana Secretary of State’s Office on Wednesday. If it passes a legal review, Zabawa must collect 24,175 voter signatures by June 17, 2016, to place the measure on next year’s ballot.

Zabawa failed to place a similar measure on the 2014 ballot after having just three weeks to collect signatures.

There were 11,717 people enrolled in Montana’s medical marijuana program at the end of May.
